What is a trust? It's created by a document that lets you transfer property to a
trustee so that the property may be administered for the benefit of yourself or
others. The trust:
- Manages some or all of your assets;
- Operates now or at any time in the future;
- Accomplishes your stated objectives;
- Employs whatever terms you choose;
- Is subject to your investment discretion.
Trusts offer you flexibility and confidentiality. You can fund a trust with almost
any kind of asset: cash, securities, income-producing real estate, or insurance
proceeds. You may retain or give your trustee as much control as you desire. You
can specify how and to whom the income will be paid, for what purposes and the method
of distribution. In short, you can design a trust to do whatever is necessary to
meet your needs.
Selecting a family member to serve as your Trustee can create family tension. A

your estate. Professional asset management may also improve the rate of return on
your assets and provide a decision making process that is not influenced by emotions.
